I am a multi-talented British-Nigerian artist with interest in landscapes, figures and the words in between. Started painting again in 2017 since studying Fine Arts at the Yaba College of Arts & Technology, Nigeria with specialty in Graphic design. With a postgraduate degree in Marketing Communication from Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester. When not painting, I am working in my marketing/graphic design corner creating strategies or managing integrated communications projects. Or I am plain out having fun with family/ friends playing tennis, bowling or just seeing non-exotic places!
So why Visual Art? On one hand, I create art (and indeed literature) to release the tension that may otherwise shorten my life :). On the other, I paint to celebrate the beauty in a world full of vile hate and negativity. I believe that livening faces through art (and poetry) is a life worth living.
Generally, my revived motivation to create art is borne out of my Travails and Triumphs. At a point when my boys were only toddlers, my family nearly became homeless. As Manchester Community Central Magazine puts it, that shave "left a scar"..
My second exhibition is regrettably being put on hold due to the prevalent pandemic situation. This would be a sequel to the Mancunian State Exhibition held in summer 2018 at Ulster Gallery, in Manchester where 10% of all sold works went to BoothCentre (a local charity looking after homeless people in Manchester). Once lockdown is eased, I would finalise with Shelter Homes (supporting partner) to agree on a date which will be communicated to you. Again, a percentage of proceeds from artwork sales will go to people struggling with where to sleep. Keep your eyes peeled!
